Core Dependencies Filter

Overview

This Sensu Go filter looks for dependencies defined in check and entity annotations and invokes the sensu.CheckDependencies query expression to determine if any of the defined dependecies are in a non-OK state.

coreDependencies

The coreDependencies function implemented by this library is intended as proof-of-concept reproduction of the Sensu Core dependencies filter.

In Sensu Core the dependencies were expressed as an array. For this implementation I've chosen to use comma separated values.

Example: check dependencies

Given you have a check called https-health which monitors your website's /health endpoint, you want to suppress alerts from the https-cert check when https-health is in a non-OK state:

type: CheckConfig
api_version: core/v2
metadata:
  name: https-cert
  annotations:
    dependencies: https-health
spec:
  command: check-https-cert.rb --url https://www.example.com
  handlers:
  - pagerduty
  interval: 60
  subscriptions:
  - website

Provided that the pagerduty handler has been configured as shown below in Usage examples, the dependencies annotation with the value https-health will prevent alerts from https-cert from reaching pagerduty when https-health is not OK.

Example: entity dependencies

Given you have an agent running in a remote site with unreliable network link. Sometimes the ethernet cable falls out of port 5 on the switch, other times the ISP link fails. And yet you soldier on. It's fine.

You want to suppress alerts from any check this agent runs when either
a. the remote-site-link is in a non-OK state
b. the state of check port5 on entity remote-switch is in a non-OK state (entity/check syntax)

For an agent entity, you can set this in the agent.yml annotations:

# agent.yml
annotations:
  dependencies: remote-site-link,remote-switch/port5

Or whatever method as appropriate for the entity type or your Sensu version.

Usage examples

Asset Registration

sensuctl asset add cwjohnston/sensu-dependencies-filter -r dependencies-filter

Filter definition

Define an event filter using the coreDependencies function. This function requires the event object as its only argument.

---
type: EventFilter
api_version: core/v2
metadata:
  name: dependencies
  namespace: default
spec:
  action: allow
  expressions:
  - coreDependencies(event)
  runtime_assets:
  - dependencies-filter

Handler definition

Add the filter to any of your existing handlers. Here's a Pagerduty handler with the above event filter applied:

---
type: Handler
api_version: core/v2
metadata:
  name: pagerduty
  namespace: default
spec:
  type: pipe
  command: sensu-pagerduty-handler
  timeout: 10
  runtime_assets:
  - sensu-pagerduty-handler
  filters:
  - dependencies-filter

Inspired by Sensu Core dependencies filter extension.
